Harry Orlyk, ‘#5228 Thaddius Walker's House’, 2015, Carrie Haddad Gallery

Series: For anyone raised in the country, Harry Orlyk’s impressionist oil paintings spark a sense memory that is at once shared and deeply personal. His work evokes a return to days spent as a kid when you played behind “Old Hap’s Barn”, or played hide-and-seek in the cornfield. If raised in the city, Orlyk’s paintings illustrate what you fantasized living in the country would be like. With each changing day and season, Orlyk reminds us of the simplistic beauty inherent in rural, small town America.
